I am fourteen years old and live in Coimbatore. I am an avid reader, a tennis player and I love singing and travelling. I aspire to become an animal activist and a travel journalist—diverse careers? Well, not really. My Labrador, named Buster, means the world to me. I am a shy person, and take my time mingling, but once I am comfortable with the people around me, I am pretty talkative, too. That’s exactly what happened during our mentoring sessions with Quill Club Writers. I consider authoring this story a great opportunity to kick start my writing career. My story is dedicated to my parents and Mrs Jaya Gowri, my favourite English teacher. They have both nurtured my passion for writing with care. I hope you enjoy my story.
